Our Team

Our treatment team consist of over 35 clinicians including psychiatrist, psychologist, social workers, licensed clinical professional counselors, and nurse practitioners.  Our team of clinicians are professional and well trained with scientific knowledge of useful treatment techniques. Such techniques can be used to assist individuals to cope with stressful situations in the home, work, school and community. Working through any crisis lies an opportunity to grow and become stronger!  We stress treating the whole person mind, brain, body and spirit.


Our Approach

IPD provides services that are individualized for each and every client. Our clinicians are highly trained and focus on a thorough evaluation of the cause of your emotional pain. We examine problems in an individual’s relationships, job and life. We will understand the environment in which they grew up and how this may have effected how they view the world.  We understand the value system which they hold dear.  We evaluate if they are on medications which could make them feel bad, if they might have a medical disorder which effects how they feel or if they have a brain chemistry problem which is causing them to feel bad and distort the way they see and experience the world. Once a thorough evaluation is completed a treatment plan is designed and discussed with the individual and (with the patients permission) the family.  We identify treatments which are scientifically proven to be effective in the condition or conditions which you have presented and then we “get to work”.

It is important to us that you OBTAIN RESULTS AND IMPROVE YOUR QUALITY OF LIFE! Our goal is to assist with alleviating emotional pain and suffering for individuals, families and communities. Our plan for treatment is to improve each individual’s quality of life.  Within treatment, we use traditional and complementary approaches with the highest level of clinical and ethical standards.
